"Computing our future: Computer programming and coding" report is published
"How is coding currently integrated into curricula? How can we further advocate for coding as a key skill for a thriving and ever-innovative digital society and economy? These questions have set the scene for the development of this new report and to the renewal of our commitment to the promotion of coding teaching and learning". Marc Durando, European Schoolnet Executive Director
In October 2014, European Schoolnet published its first major report providing an overview of a wide range of coding initiatives across Europe, in both formal and informal learning environments. In the last year, coding in schools continued to be a worldwide trend and major European countries like France and Spain have just introduced it in their curricula this year.
Today, European Schoolnet published an updated overview of the formal integration of coding in school curricula across Europe, illustrated with examples of curricula integration by country. The new report also looks at training provisions for teachers and highlights a broad spectrum of formal and informal coding initiatives offered to students. The findings are based on a survey with 21 Ministries of Education (from 20 European countries and Israel), which gave an overview of their current initiatives and plans.
